Saltire Award information sessions

Posted by jamie on the 26 July 2013

To celebrate International Youth Day, I am facilitating Saltire Award information sessions for Trust Volunteering. Do you work with young people who give up their time? Do you know any young people who volunteer? If so then this is for you! Saltire Awards are the new Scottish awards designed to formally recognise the commitment and contribution of youth volunteering to voluntary organisations. 


Saltire Awards are designed to encourage, enable and reward youth volunteering and to make it easy for organisations, schools and community groups to support young people taking part. Come along to find out how it works and meet some of the young people who have benefited from the awards.


It's free to attend and complimentary refreshments will be provided. 

Book on 01475 553334 or email jamie.brown@the-trust.org.uk 

Sessions Available: Thursday 15th August 2013, 2pm or 5pm 

Venue: To be confirmed
